Everything you need to know about vaping marijuana
Home Testing for THC Potency Is a Viable Option
As anyone with even rudimentary experience using cannabis can tell you, potency can vary. A lot. Sometimes that can be half the fun—learning just what effects a new strain will have and how strongly you’ll experience them.
But if you’re a medical marijuana patient, cannabinoid potency can be a very important factor in your therapy. Cannabis from a MMJ dispensary, if you have access to one, will often be laboratory tested. The results from these analyses can help guide a patient in selecting a strain with the right cannabinoid potency and ratio to give the desired effect.
If you’re growing your own herb, or getting it from a source that hasn’t tested it, there are options available for you to determine its potency. If you live in a state that has legal weed, there may be a commercial lab near you that performs potency, contamination and other tests on samples you provide to them. But lab tests can be costly, running about $40 or more for each potency analysis.
Here's Why Puerto Rico Is the Newest Hot Pot Travel Spot
For many people, Puerto Rico, nicknamed, “The Island of Enchantment,” brings to mind images of sunny beaches, surf and the beauty of El Yunque—the only tropical rainforest in the United States National Parks system. You’re probably not thinking about weed.
One might assume all the good ganja in the Caribbean is in Jamaica, but that would be a mistake. Puerto Ricans love their marijuana, and it doesn’t seem hard to find good bud at decent prices, at least in San Juan.
Puerto Ricans enjoy weed so much that their 4/20 celebrations, events and political rallies spanned four days this year. From the west side of the island to the capital, residents came out en masse to enjoy, educate and fight for access to everyone’s favorite plant. Some of us in the States could use their energy and dedication to the cause as an inspiration.
A Sumptuous Seattle 420 Dining Experience
Since the legalization of cannabis in 2015, entertaining in Washington State has rapidly evolved to include cannabis inspired events. Due to prohibition of public consumption, people have found unique ways to partake of cannabis legally. Private, in-home parties lightly skirt the law so guests can use their favorite cannabis products.
I launched Ettalew’s Edibles in 2009 and have been present for the evolution of cannabis from medical to legal. Having witnessed the landscape change from something one consumed in private, to outdoor festivals with public consumption, I have eagerly anticipated cannabis dinner parties, where curators of food and beverage carefully match spices, flavors, and textures with terpenes and cannabinoids to create a mind-blowing experience.
One such dinner was coordinated by a team comprised of Derek Simcik, executive chef of Scout at the Thompson Hotel Seattle, Silas Manlove, beverage manager of the Thompson Hotel Seattle, and from Lux Pot Shop, owner AC Franks and product buyer Shea Hynes. While these gentlemen were the sommeliers of food, beverage, and cannabis, the staff at the dispensary and the restaurant provided amazing support that enabled the evening to run smoothly, with great attention to detail.
Millionaire Owner of Beverly Hills Cannabis Club Supplies the Stars
This is juicy, so what better resource than a British tabloid to fill us in on who is providing what to whom in the glitzy world of Hollywood cannabis consumption?
The Mirror, also known as the “Intelligent Tabloid,” recently told us about the exciting life of Cheryl Shuman, owner of the Beverly Hills Cannabis Club and the special service she provides to the rich and famous.
Such service reportedly have included a 3 a.m. weed call, requesting “all of the sex oils and herbs” she had in order to spice things up for an “A-list actor in the throes of a marathon sex session with five young women.”
Shuman slipped out of her jammies, got dressed and shot across town in her red Ferrari to deliver the supplies.
Pot Companies and Consumers Connect at Farmers Market
Cultivators and makers of concentrates and other marijuana products had direct access to their customers at the San Diego Cannabis Farmers Market. The event was held outdoors at a Four Points by Sheraton hotel in California’s second largest city.
In order to comply with current regulations, a doctor’s medical marijuana recommendation was required for entry, but it was evident the crowd was also eager to celebrate recreational use with the passage of Prop. 64, as a party atmosphere prevailed.
It didn’t take shoppers long to get in the right frame of mind, with free hits and dabs available at every turn. The reggae rhythms were dropped down only long enough for special events, such as giveaways and competitions.
